Arts Council England works to get great art to everyone by championing, developing and investing in artists and artistic experiences that enrich people’s lives.
As the national development agency for the arts, we support a range of artistic activities from theatre to music, literature to dance, photography to digital art and carnival to crafts.
Great art inspires us, brings us together and teaches us about ourselves and the world around us. In short, it makes life better.
Between 2008 and 2011 we will invest in excess of £1.6 billion of public money from the government and the National Lottery to create these experiences for as many people as possible across the country.
Arts that reflect the diversity of contemporary England is crucial to our work. We recognise that disabled people are part of that diversity and that promoting disability equality is an important part of the role we have to play in supporting the arts to be the best and most inclusive.
Over the next few months we will be reviewing our current disability equality scheme and want to appoint an independent disability equality advisory group to support this work and help us arrive at a new disability equality scheme.
We are looking to appoint 10 (9 members and 1 Chair) creative, passionate disabled people, with knowledge and experience of promoting disability equality alongside a familiarity and understanding of disability equality issues within the arts.
Time commitment will be approximately 5 days over the period of a year.
An induction into this role will be provided and all reasonable adjustments and access costs will be met. A daily fee for advisors will also apply.
Closing Date: 12 pm Thursday 28th May 2009
